UNIVERSITY SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY PARKS

2019-06-28 | Kaswii

Knowledge conversion sequence. [Note. from, Macharia Waruingi. (2010). Ustawi Knowledge Conversion Continuum. Minnetonka, MN: Ustawi.]

My royal eminence…

We are finally here, and as promised this post is to expound on the University Science and Technology Parks (USTPs). This kind of park is also known as a research park. It is a property based development that fosters growth of tenant affiliated with higher institutions of learning. The purpose is to facilitate sharing of knowledge, promote innovation and advance research to viable commercial products. 

Ubrica will facilitate design, development and implementation of 66 Science and Technology Parks (STPs) for Kenyan universities. Ubrica will also provide STP development and management service through our Scientific Real Estate Development Division (SREDD).           

How will the STPs benefit the local communities?

1. Science parks may offer a number of shared resources such as incubator programs, collaboration activities, telecommunication hubs, reception, security, among others.

3. They can be attractive to university students who may interact with prospective employers.

2. Science parks also aim to bring together people who assist the developers of technology to bring their work to commercial fruition.

4. Apart from tenants, science parks create jobs for the local community, for example they may be built with restaurants, sports facilities, etc.

5. Science parks catalyze community innovation.

Ubrica will establish a University Technology Transfer Office (UTTO) to facilitate the commercialization of University intellectual property, including patents and copyrights. The UTTO will be responsible for the development, protection, and utilization of intellectual property rights.

UTTO will serve as the liaison of cooperative ventures between university and industry. UTTO will promote and facilitate business development and entrepreneurship by bringing researchers together with experienced entrepreneurs and investors to form companies for commercializing university technologies.

UTTO will maintain an electronic database of start-ups based on university technology. The data base will be publicly available through Ubrica Website that people can view and invest directly. We will create a reward system for the science park.

Staff members who will work in collaborative teams to create markets, execute patenting and licensing of new ideas, discoveries and innovations will receive rewards. The reward system will also facilitate the translation of innovations into commercial products and services. Researchers and students who will work with UTTO will also receive incentive.

Everyone is winning here. Reader, get involved, don’t be left out. Systems are changing. The future is now! In my next post I will break down how UBNs have been allocated to support the parks.

You can find the android app on Google Play Store and the iOS app on Apples App Store.

COINOMI

This is another multiplatform wallet. Coinomi allows you to interact with many blockchain. With coinomi you can also transact on platforms like Changelly and Shapeshift. The best feature about this app is its top-notch security. If you’re looking for a mobile wallet that’s fast, easy to use, and supports a wide variety of altcoins, the Coinomi wallet is worth consideration. With Coinomi, you can start storing Bitcoin, Ether, Ubricoin and other digital assets on your Android phone with just a few clicks. Coinomi is also free to download.

HOW TO CHOOSE A CRYPTOCURRENCY WALLET

First, before you get to the point of choosing a cryptocurrency wallet, you need to know what it is. Rosic (2017) defines a crypto wallet as a “software program that stores private and public keys and interacts with various blockchain to enable users to send and receive digital currency and monitor their balance.” If you want to acquire and use any crypto like Ubricoin, your doorway is the wallet.

There are different types of wallets that present different features appealing to a user’s preference. They can be broken down to three categories being, software, hardware and paper. Software wallets have subcategories, which are desktop, mobile or online wallets.

Software

  • Desktop:

Essentially, you download the wallet and install it in your desktop. Then you can use it to carry out a transaction.

  • Mobile:

This app runs on your phone. You can get most of the apps on the Playstore and download them.

  • Online:

Online wallets run on the cloud and are accessible from any computing device in any location as long as there is availability of an internet connection.

Hardware

A hardware wallet is different from a software wallet in that they are in physical form like a USB device. Although transactions occur online, they are stored offline and therefore provide additional protection from hackers and malware.

Paper

Paper wallets are easy to use and provide a high level of security. While the term paper wallet can simply refer to a physical copy or printout of your public and private keys, it can also refer to a piece of software that securely generates a pair of keys, which are printed. If, you want to withdraw or spend currency, all you need to do is transfer funds from your paper wallet to your software wallet by either entering your private keys manually or by scanning a QR code on the paper wallet.

Due to the nature of our ERC20 token, we highly recommend the use of a software wallet, especially a mobile wallet because they are easily accessible and usable. To conduct Ubricoin transactions, you need to have an, ERC20 compatible wallet. You may refer to an earlier article on the best ERC20 wallets out there. Now go out there and enrich yourself.

TOP FIVE BEST ERC20 TOKEN WALLETS

Ethereum is the most popular platform for smart contracts and is an absolute force to reckon with. For an ERC20 token wallet to meet the standards, it has to achieve certain criteria:

  • User friendliness – this is the ease of use as well as the design of the interface
  • Ability to back up and retrieve files easily
  • Compatibility with multiple operating systems
  • Private keys – this gives you control over your wallet
  • Availability of active developers in that development community.

Below is a list of wallets that meet the criteria above, as reviewed by Cryptomaniac (2019).

  1. LEDGER NANO S

This wallet has achieved a top place in the list because of a variety of features that give it an edge over the other wallets. They include inbuilt security PINs, pass phrases and seed keys. It gives a user the ability to store more than 24 cryptocurrencies. It connects to a PC via USB and has an OLED screen and a side button. The screen is a convenient provision to keep track of transactions. It is however not free.

  • TREZOR

This wallet connects to a PC via USB like the previous one. It has a stylish and futuristic look. It has cool features like a touch screen and a magnetic dock that ensures it gets a firm hold over any surface. It has a unique backup feature, which comes in the form of a personal recovery code. Immediately when this device is setup it creates a 12-digit code, which must be written down for future reference. The user can make use of this code to retrieve lost funds in cases of loss or damage.

  • MYETHER WALLET

It is an open-source web-based service wallet. Despite criticism on online storage, due to susceptibility to malware and cybercrime, it provides unmatched security. This is because it uses your machine’s browser to generate relevant data and does not save any data on its server. It is not a wise course of action to save all funds on this platform because it is an online platform, where 100% safety is not guaranteed.

  • METAMASK

Metamask is a browser extension, which allows the same functions, features, and ease of access like an Ethereum wallet. It enables you to interact with dAPP and smart contracts easily. You don’t have to install any software, just add Metamask extension to your browser and start using a portable yet proficient wallet for your ERC20 token. It is a by far the most flexible web wallet.

  • COINOMI

This wallet provides support to more than 70 coins. It keeps your private keys as private as it sounds, right on your device. It gives you full control of the funds and by providing you with a master password. It helps to protect your account against hackers and malware of any sort. It is however only available on android but there has been talk of releasing an IOS version.

Other ERC20 wallets worth checking out include Trust, Parity and Mist. They all come highly recommended. Please get yourself any of the above and start purchasing crypto instantly.

SUSTAINABLE ONE HEALTH COMMUNITIES


2019-06-25 | Kaswii

My royal eminence… 

From my previous post we explored the Ubrica Retail Clinic Centers. Now, in today’s post, we will look into the Sustainable One-Health Communities (SOHCs). They will comprise of 6 primary components. 

1. A co-operative Society of Ubricans (CSU) constituted by our members drawing from local communities.

2. Produce/product workshops for improving quality and packaging of things produced by our members.

3. A retail store that serves as a market for produce and products by members of the CSU.

4. A one-health clinic that provides clinical services to members of the CSU.

5. A web/mobile platform (http://shop.ubrica.com/) for managing the commerce issuing from the retail system.

6. A biomedical industrial city.             

Our SOHCs are rooted in the conception that economic development is the most powerful means of health production. Economic development is the greatest cause of improvement in health. Economic health, the 4th element of health production, is the primary driver of sustainable one-health in any community in the world. It is common knowledge that compared to a wealthy person a poor person is more likely to get sick; more likely to develop complications of disease; more likely to succumb complications and to develop disability due to disease, and more likely to die from a disease. It is impossible to improve health of a poor person in the long term, without improving the wealth of the person in the long term.

And, so, here is the fundamental solution. 

When we strike a sale at Soko Janja, our online marketplace, we divide the proceeds of produce/product sale into three fractions. One fraction goes back to the member, in form of profit. Second fraction goes back to the co-operative to meet operations and administration needs. The third fraction sits in a health fun. This is what is called health risk pooling. A member seeking care at a health facility is fully covered. 

The owners of health facility are happy because they are assured of payment of the quantity and quality of their service offering.

So what is pooling anyway?

Pooling refers to collecting money from many people in a group so that the money collected is then used to pay for health services for its members. Ours is a pooled smart contract where, each individual holder of Ubricoin will receive a smart contract to use health services at a URCC at the time of need Ubricoin holders who will shop at Soko Janja, practice healthy behaviors will get loyalty point inform of Brevis. The Brevis will go to the pooled smart contract to be used to access health care services in the URCCs. The smart contract will cover preventive and curative services for the holder by the contract. Pooled smart contract will recreate a pooled smart contract (PSC) that will act as health risk pooling.

Reader, here it is all about the quality of your service and the rewards that come with it. This system is as solid as it sounds. Follow the link below to buy UBN https://ubricoin.ubrica.com/buy-ubricoin/

In my next post, we expound on the University Science and Technology Parks.

UBRICA CLINIC RETAIL CENTERS


2019-06-24 | Kaswii

 My royal eminence…

Today is the day we explore the Ubrica Retail Clinic Centers. This is a concept that involves achieving  universal health while ensuring access. Yes this is indeed possible. We will use the URCCs model to organize village level commerce. A URCC will have three main components: a medical clinic, a retail store, and a produce value addition and quality improvement workshop. Each URCC will serve a catchment population of at least 300,000 people. Thus 100 URCCs will serve at least 30 million people. 

           2 billion UBNs will be allocated to help in design, development, construction and management of the URCCs. We intend to construct at least 100 health centers average of 2 units per county. 

               The 2 billion UBNs will be allocated in four phases. 

     In the first phase, 100 million UBNs will be allocated for the design of the URCCs. Desktop research will be carried out to determine the structure and requirements needed to construct the URCCs. Field research and visiting the sites will be done to determine suitable areas for constructing the URCCs. We will also do environmental studies and acquire permits. We will do marketing to create awareness and identify doctors who will be running the clinics. We will develop a program for quality training. The identified doctors who will own the clinics, will go through continuous professional development. Public outreach and evaluation will be carried out to understand the scope of the project. 

    The second phase will see 300 million UBNs being allocated to the development of the URCCs. We will hire consultants, architects, engineers, planners, construction and security personnel and IT professionals. This team will be responsible for planning and generating of construction documents for different counties. 

      In the third phase, 1 billion UBNs will be allocated to help us acquire land and their title deeds for the implementation of the URCC project. This land will be sourced from different counties in Kenya. Our goal is to ensure that we at least have land in all the 47 counties so as to effectively start the construction of the URCCs. We will also use these funds to purchase clinical equipment required in the clinics. 

      The phase four allocation will see, 600 million UBNs being allocated to the management of the URCCs. Funds raised in this phase will be used for continual growth and maintenance of the clinics and to set stage for long-term success. We will also hire teams which will be in charge of maintaining the equipment. 

           Reader as you can see, this is a serious project. One that is set to change the direction of health in this country as well as our individual economic status. I am involved. Are you?

Would you like to? well, you can purchase UBNs from our website today. https://ubricoin.ubrica.com/buy-ubricoin/ and join the movement. In my next post, we focus on our intent to build sustainable One Health Communities.

TOP FIVE BITCOIN WALLETS

Due to popular demand, it is only right that we give a review of the top five crypto wallets according to various online sources. Blockgeeks.com define a cryptocurrency wallet as a software program that stores private and public keys and interacts with various blockchain to enable users to send and receive digital currency and monitor their balance. It is essentially like a normal wallet but it holds digital currency. During the years, wallets have come forward to compete for the best crypto wallet position. Wallets are, categorized by type, which could be either desktop or mobile, for online transactions, hardware wallets like a USB and paper wallets. Below is a list of five wallets and their area of specialization.

Best overall wallet: COINBASE

Coinbase is one of the easiest ways to buy, sell and hold cryptocurrencies, which earns it the first spot on this list. While the big upside of Coinbase is ease of use, that is offset with some worries about security. It has since upgraded its security after the Mt. Gox wallet was hacked and lost billions in user currency.

Best for security: TREZOR

Trezor is not a full buying and selling platform like Coinbase. Instead, it is simply a place to store your crypto. Trezor is a physical device that plugs into your computer, tablet or phone to access your coins. The Trezor wallet works with multiple currencies and works as a password manager, two-factor authentication device and other useful features.

Best for desktop: ELECTRUM

Electrum is a software wallet, which means your crypto is stored in a set of files on your laptop or desktop computer. It is currently available for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and Android. Electrum can work with some physical wallets and has some flexibility compared to just using a hardware wallet like the Trezor. It is however risky because it could lead to loss of digital currency if the computer crushes, is damaged or hacked.

Best online: BLOCKCHAIN.INFO

Blockchain.info is similar to Coinbase in that it is an online wallet, but you can’t buy or sell directly through Blockchain, which means your Bitcoin storage is separate from your Bitcoin marketplace. Blockchain.info is similar to Coinbase in that it is an online wallet, but you can’t buy or sell directly through Blockchain, which means your Bitcoin storage is separate from your Bitcoin marketplace.

Best for free buying and selling: ROBINHOOD

Personally, Robinhood to me is very convenient because you can as well keep track of stocks as well. Robinhood started as a free stock trading platform and has recently expanded to include support for options and other investments, including cryptocurrencies. Robinhood is both a wallet and an exchange, so like Coinbase everything is in one place. Robinhood, is a mobile-first platform, and is not yet available on the web.

 The above wallets however may not support all cryptos and so it is advisable to get a more flexible wallet like Coinomi or Trust wallet where you can exchange and hold numerus cryptos like Ubricoin.

Two choices: play it safe or play it smart

Have you ever been broke? I don’t mean having little money broke, I am talking about being in an emergency, like needing to visit the hospital and you don’t have money broke. Many of us will run to loan apps. but the loan apps cannot give any more money because remember, still haven’t finished paying the previous debt so there’s only one other option left: borrowing from friends.

Most of these times even our friends don’t have money and when they do, its in a bank and involves a whole lot of processes which makes it take a while to arrive and by the time it does, you have already given up or everything that you were trying to avoid has caught up with you.

That, my dear readers pretty much summed up my life until I came across UBRICOIN. Ubricoin does not need any trusted third party to transfer money and it does so without any delays, without fees and moves faster than three days.

Okay I know you are probably wondering if Ubricoin is a person or a thing so let me explain.

Ubricoin is a block chain technology for global health ensuring universal health access to you and your loved ones. Block chain is a time stamped set of immutable records managed by many independent computers owned by many people and distributed all over the world. Each record is tied together with many other records to form a block and each block is secured and bound to each other using cytographic code.

All this information in the block chain is transparent and open for anyone and everyone to see. The purpose of Ubricoin on block chain is to serve as a platform devoted to improving quality health for all. However for a blockchain to work it relies on three things:

1. An open ledger which shows each transaction and can account for every transaction made.

2. A distributed ledger in which each person has a copy of the ledger which is continuously updated and if a person joins then he/she gets the same copy. All participants of the network must see the same copy

3. Miners are special nodes which can hold the ledger.

If you want to have a financially secure future, you can’t play by the old set of rules. It’s just too risky Ubricoin might just be the change you need to adapt. For more detailed information on Ubricoin see my next post and I will let you know why you should use Ubricoin.
